"The pictures you view here do not do this gun justice. There is something to be said about a gun that just *looks* like a gun. Even in the box, when you first open it, this is a thing of beauty. In a time when guns are becoming more space-agey, more funky-railey, and more futureisty, anyone can look upon it and understand. Then you take the gun out of the box. Go on, I dare you. Just take it out. It *Feels* like a gun. You won't know it until you do. No pistol grips. No foregrips. No 75% let-off or fancy tights. It is heavy. Load it up. Put the clip in. Now use the decorative bolt to act like you are loading a round. No *Squeak* Ahhhhhhhh. The sound you hear is what it sounds like to chamber a round. If I had to simulate it, it would be Hkkkhhhh Hkkkkhhh. Yeah, like you are hacking a loogey, but way more metallic. Now, wind that mag and shoulder that weapon soldier. Feel that? Heavy, dense, powerful. It doesn't stop there. This is not the most expensive gun I own, nor is it the moat powerful. It doesn't shoot the fastest, or at the highest rate of fire. The magazine loads wonky sometimes, and I would recommend winding it after you load it (at least for the stock mag). You definately want a strap for it to ease the burden of a long day. Now, soldier, shoot the gun. Roughly 700 rpm at about 400 fps with .20's. Incredibly accurate. Feels like a gun, not a toy. Awesome."
